Timing a Mommy Makeover
You should wait at least six months after giving birth to allow your body to stabilize after the hormonal and physical changes of pregnancy and childbirth.

If this irregularity doesn’t resolve, breast asymmetry correction specialist Dr. Casper can help correct it.
A Mommy Makeover can be postponed for years with the same beneficial results. Women who have very small children as well as the demands of a job should carefully consider how managing the demands on their time will impact their recovery.
I have lived in San Marino all my life and Dr. Casper has been a fixture for Cosmetic Surgery here. I have had many procedures done by Dr. Casper throughout the years and several friends of mine have had procedures done by Dr. Casper as well and are very happy. I think he is a fantastic surgeon and very artistic. Dr. Casper is very professional and has diagnosed symptoms that I had that my general doctor couldn't even figure out that had nothing to do with cosmetic surgery. He is extremely intelligent and takes his time explaining everything. His staff has been very nice and always helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Casper for all Cosmetic Procedures and even when you need information on a symptom not related to cosmetic surgery that your regular general Doctor can't figure out ask Dr. Casper. He has amazed me and my family many times and we are very lucky to know him. *
The recovery for this procedure varies depending on the procedures you will have and how well you heal. Some procedures can be done simultaneously which will speed up overall recovery time.
Breast augmentation with lift and a tummy tuck is a very popular Mommy Makeover in Los Angeles. These two areas are most affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Having these two procedures at once means that you will be able to enjoy the result of your procedure months faster than single surgeries would allow with about the same recovery time.
There are some procedures that cannot be combined with others as it would be unsafe for the patient. Dr. Casper will advise you on the time frame needed for your particular Mommy Makeover. He will combine procedures when he can based on what is safe.
Be sure to schedule adequate help during your initial recovery period particularly during the first two weeks. You will be dealing with fatigue and some level of discomfort. Most patients find the pain very manageable with prescription medication but patients will need to compensate for stiffness and tenderness for several weeks which is difficult when dealing with babies or toddlers.
You may find it difficult to walk completely upright for a few weeks after a tummy tuck. You will also be restricted in what you are allowed to lift during the first month. If you have small children, make sure to have someone who can care for their needs while you get through the initial recovery period.

One of the most noticeable changes to your body during and after pregnancy is, of course, the abdomen. While you are pregnant, the stomach muscles are often stretched and pulled apart, making it difficult to re-tighten them through exercise alone. A tummy tuck not only pulls the abdominal muscles taut, it also lessens loose, excess skin and gives the abdomen a tighter, more fit-looking appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Procedure Take?
The length of a mommy makeover surgery depends on which procedures will be needed to restore your body to its pre-baby condition. The idea behind a mommy makeover is to have all the procedures you need completed in one surgery, saving you the cost of multiple surgical appointments. Typically, the procedures in a mommy makeover can be completed in four to six hours.
When Should I Get a Mommy Makeover?
If you are considering a mommy makeover, you might think about waiting until your days of childbearing have come to an end. A mommy makeover will not prevent you from having more children, but getting pregnant again could once again stretch muscles, skin, and tissue, leaving you in a similar condition to prior to your mommy makeover.
Will There Be Scars with a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover can completely restore your body after having children, which requires incisions. A surgeon with extensive expertise and good technique can control scarring and instruct you on to how to minimize the scars so they fade to being almost invisible. With careful incision placement, you should be comfortable wearing even the most revealing clothing.

How Long Should I Wait After Giving Birth for a Mommy Makeover?
You can get a mommy makeover after about six months to a year following giving birth. If you are breastfeeding, you hold off six months after completing. If you’ve gained weight during your pregnancy, the first step is to exercise and diet to lose post-baby weight. Your body may now have stretch marks. Your skin may not have returned to its original position, leaving your once taut, youthful curves looking loose and sagging. Breastfeeding stresses the breast and skin tissue, and they may have lost their once firm, bouncy shape. By waiting at least six months you’ll have a better idea of what is needed with your mommy makeover.
Can I Get a Mommy Makeover and Still Breastfeed?
Yes, it is possible to breastfeed even after breast augmentation, but be aware that the added weight may cause some stretching and sagging, requiring a breast lift in the future, depending upon the person and skin firmness and flexibility. Ideally, mothers should wait six months after breastfeeding their last child before moving forward with a breast augmentation.
